Stephen Donnelly criticises ‘thuggish behaviour’ as Gardaí attacked in Dublin

Fourteen people have been arrested in Dublin City following a series of public order offences.

Five juveniles were among those arrested as crowds gathered in south of the city centre.


One Garda officer was injured and one patrol car was damaged as bottles an missiles were thrown at Gardaí.

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly strongly condemned the actions which occurred in Dublin city last night, labeling it “thuggish behaviour and completely unacceptable.”

Donnelly went on to say what occurred on South William Street was nothing short of a disgrace.


“Nobody has the right to attack our Garda, it in no way represents our country,” he said.

Gardaí said that last night while dealing with an incident on South William Street, missiles and glass bottles were thrown at them.

One Garda officer sustained a leg injury and required hospital treatment, while a patrol car was also damaged.

The nine adults and five juveniles arrested for public order offences were arrested and taken to Pearse Street and Kevin Street Garda stations.

Six people were charged with public order offences and released.
